The latest, greatest treatments for PTSD

Description

At least in Britain, it’s official: psychotherapy works better than medication for PTSD. You shouldn’t be too surprised. The last time we covered PTSD (TCPR April 2004) we reviewed the SSRIs and found them to have evidence of only modest efficacy. Now, according to the latest treatment guidelines from Britain's National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE), antidepressants are no longer recommended as a first-line treatment, but cognitive therapy is.
